Genesis 2:1-3 Stop and Smell the Roses

Genesis 2

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

We have learned, so far, that we are made in the image of God. And, on the seventh day, after 6 days of creation, God rested from all His work. He sanctified the seventh day and made it a day of rest for all creation.

God keeps nothing from us that He enjoys for Himself. And, He asks nothing from us that He isn't willing to do Himself, either. Jesus is proof of that!

Today, we tend to stay busy in our lives. Sometimes we sacrifice our health by working seven days a week. We fail to take the time to enjoy all that we work so hard for! So, set aside a day of rest to spend time and enjoy all you are working for, and you will find an increase in your productivity through-out the rest of the week!

And don't forget to never be too busy to thank God for what you are busy for!
